The ants learn to swim.

A couple of years ago a friend of ours was dog-sitting for us. Our dog, Olive, often doesn't eat all her food at once. We have to be very careful of ants here, so our friend had the idea of putting Olive's food bowl in a larger bowl of water to stop the ants getting to it.

Today we observed a column of ants heading to the food bowl and assumed that, as sometimes happens, Olive had drunk the "moat" dry or left a piece of food outside her bowl.

When we looked closer we saw that the ants had learned to swim.
